The Long Branch marina is open seven days a week from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. It is conveniently located next to the swim beach and main boat ramp at Long Branch Lake. Sunny days are here, and school is out!

Located at the marina, the park store sells coffee, tea, fountain drinks, bottled drinks, chips, general food items, premade sandwiches, camping and boating supplies, fishing gear, night crawlers, ice cream, candy, T-shirts, and souvenirs. Fuel for boating can be purchased at the marina. A large rear deck overlooking the lake offers visitors a relaxing view.
